Gemstone Vibe ~
A stunning combination of 2 varieties of NATURAL turquoise. The handcut cylinder shaped beads are from Peru and the cubes are from the Auhui Mine in China. It is lovely to wear and lightweight.This mala is hand-knotted and has 108 cube shaped beads with 5 transition beads. There is no clasp and will easily fit over most heads. It hangs to ~34" and the pendant drops another 2 inches. It is long enough that it can be worn as a choker. Simply hold it from both ends, wrap around the neck and push the sun charm through the loop. (See images.) One of a kind.
Mercury Retrograde Support
Planet Mercury rules supreme in all areas of communication and when in Retrograde, havoc reigns through misunderstandings. Turquoise is an excellent support stone for Mercury Retrograde as it is a power stone of expression.
Turquoise has been used in jewelry for thousands of years. One of the oldest known examples is a bracelet belonging to the Egyptian queen Zer who ruled around 5500 BCE. Many Native American tribes also valued this stone believing it to be a bridge between Earth and Sky, grounding while remaining open to Spirit.
Turquoise promotes empathy, yet stabilizes mood swings, making it good for use with panic attacks or depression. It stimulates the Third Eye for use in mediation and activates the Throat Chakra, aiding in communication. Turquoise is a stone of self-forgiveness, self-acceptance and release from beliefs that no longer serve.
The Himalayan people believe that if Tibetan Turquoise is given as a gift of love, it will bring happiness and good fortune to both parties. Folk Lore there also suggests that the color of the stone will change based on the health of the wearer.
